Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V100G (PCVV100GKIT1) PC Desktop
My computer crashed and hasn't recovered. When I power it up, it fails to post. A long beep that repeats itself is all that I?m left with. Things I've done to diagnose: Removed RAM Replaced Ram with New Tested Ram (passed) Removed and reseated Video Card Pressed all visible chips Changed power supply Thanx
Try disconnecting power to all your drives. It's possible one of the drives has a short that is bringing down the power supply (most power supplies will shut down if they sense a short, to avoid damaging your computer). If it's not that, it's either a bad video card (reseating obviously won't help if the card's damaged) or a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another machine you can borrow a video card out of, you can test that. Otherwise, you'll have to replace the motherboard and processor. Never replace just one of the two, as one can damage the other and it's not worth frying your new equipment by putting damaged hardware in.
